all proposed

Arbitrators should vote for or against each point or abstain.

  • Only items that receive a majority aye vote will be enacted.
  • Items that receive a majority nay vote will be formally rejected.
  • Items that do not receive a majority aye or nay vote will be open to possible amendment by any Arbitrator if he so chooses. After the amendment process is complete, the item will be voted on one last time.
  • Items that receive a majority abstentions will need to go through an amendment process and be re-voted on once.

Conditional votes for or against and abstentions should be explained by the Arbitrator in parenthesis after his time-stamped signature. For example, an Arbitrator can state that he would only favor a particular remedy based on whether or not another remedy/remedies were enacted.

  1. I'm unconvinced. CheeseDreams (clearly a participant) moved an edit by Ta bu shi da yu (whose participation status was unclear) to the talk page — with a clear edit summary. I agree that messing with an arbitration page in an attempt to deceive or obfuscate is a heinous offence, but at the same time, there's enough extenuation here to cause me to hesitate.

Frivolous Requests for Comment[edit]

3) For repeatedly filing frivolous Requests for Comment, Cheesedreams is prohibited from filing any RFCs in the future.

  1. Ambi 01:33, 1 Jan 2005 (UTC) I think this is something that needs to be addressed, but this isn't the way to go about it.

3.1) For repeatedly filing frivolous Requests for Comment, the number of RFCs open that were started by CheeseDreams is limited to one unless it is demonstrated to an administrator that there is a serious need for the RFC.

  2. I think this is probably a better remedy than 3.0, but the wording seems rather tortured. What exactly does "the number of RFCs open that were started by Cheeseofdreams" mean? →Raul654 22:18, Jan 2, 2005 (UTC)
    It means just that: the number of RFCs open that were initially opened by Cheesedreams. -- Grunt ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ 23:42, 2005 Jan 10 (UTC)
  3. sannse (talk) 17:47, 9 Jan 2005 (UTC) I think the concerns expressed in talk about extensions of admin power are valid. Anyone can open an RfC, if Cheesedreams can convince any eligible contributor to participate that should be enough. (I corrected the name above and elsewhere on this page) - also this is not supported by a FoF.
  4. Sannse is right - David Gerard 23:51, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Enforcement[edit]

proposed wording to be modified by Arbitrators and then voted on

RfC removal[edit]

1) RFCs filed by Cheesedreams in excess of 3.1 above may be removed at discretion by an administrator if it is percieved that there is not a serious need for the RFC, provided that that administrator is not personally involved

Reversion[edit]

Jesus-related articles[edit]

3bis) Cheesedreams is banned from editing all Jesus-related articles for the period of one year. Administrators are given discretion in determining what articles are "Jesus-related" and may enact blocks of up to one week for each edit.

  1. →Raul654 22:28, Jan 2, 2005 (UTC) - I'm a bit on the fence about this one. She's caused a lot of trouble on the christianity related articles, but I still hold out hope that she could be a useful contributor to them. And while some could argue that she could use the talk pages, realistically, that doesn't mean much.
  2. sannse (talk) 17:47, 9 Jan 2005 (UTC) Agree with Raul. Cheesedreams has contributed good edits, especially before things got so heated. And Cheesedreams is not the only contributor to have been uncivil here. On further reflection, I think a ban is warranted for a while, but I would like Cheesedreams to have the opportunity to show her ability for cooperative editing (see below)

5) If Cheesedreams can demonstrate a pattern of editing with civility, and without serious conflict, for the next six months, she can apply for a lifting of the above ban on editing Christianity related articles.
